Winter Talks Programme

The talks programme starts soon with talks on Friday and Saturday nights. Talks, usually, start at 19.30 after supper at 18.30 for those who want and book it.

Friday 24th
John and Sue Chadwick - NOT a Voyage for Madmen

This is not a talk about monstrous waves, hurricanes, capsizes, demastings, etc - it’s just about an ordinary sailing couple going cruising in their boat, Dandelion. They left the Tamar in 2016, going down into the Beagle Channel in Tierra del Fuego, rounding Cape Horn and returning via the Falklands, finishing back in the Tamar last September.

Saturday 8th
David Tagg-Oram - 'What England expects today: Project NELSON'
David is Project NELSON Programme Director and currently the Royal Navy's Information Warfare DACOS Data

Technological change is transforming every part of our lives and the world around us. Over the last 474 years the Royal Navy has been envied for its innovation, from copper sheathing to steam turbines to gunnery training. Project NELSON is the Royal Navy’s response to meet, and flourish in, the Fourth Industrial Revolution through the creation of a digital, data and artificial intelligence accelerator. Alongside our other accelerators in autonomous navigation and operations (NavyX) and communications (MarWorks), Project NELSON is a critical part of the new First Sea Lord’s vision for a New Navy.

Friday 21st
Jason Small - Salvage of the Submarine ‘Santa Fe'

The story of salvage of the Argentinian submarine SANTA FE captured by British Forces during the Falkland conflict.

Friday 27th
Jane McRill - By Bus and Boat around Central America

Covering time spent in Guatemala, Belize, Mexico, Cuba, Panama, San Blas Islands and Colombia

To enjoy supper before each of the Winter Talks, book shortly before the event via the Events menu in the Members Only area.

And remember that the Cadet Theory nights (Fridays 17 January, & 7 February) are open to all members.
